This is the first cardboard boat race in Tallahassee for the public to enter! We are excited to bring this to town and look forward to a splashing good time!
The purpose is to raise money for chronically homeless and at-risk veterans in North Florida. All proceeds will go to this purpose.
There are 2 different classes but many chances to win a trophy and bragging rights! Boats are judged not only on how well they float, but also on their outward appearance. We’ll be shallow and judge from shore! To qualify for the beauty pageant they must float as well.
The two racing classes are Open and Day of Race. The race directions are below:
We updated the rules! See the changes in red on the uploaded rules below!
